I love babywearing! I love that my lo stays close and is so much more comfortable for them being close to mama. I also love that I have my hands to carry things or help out my other children. I am most excited about any of them. There are several I have never tried and would love the chance to win one


Allie August 1, 2012 at 12:18 pm

Baby wearing is a must : )


Andrea McFarland August 1, 2012 at 2:25 pm

Only way to go anywhere with a newborn and a 2 year old! My K’tan has saved my life! I want my husband to be able to wear the baby too…think it’ll strengthen their bond!


polly August 1, 2012 at 2:40 pm

very excited about the onya carrier


Wendy @ ABCs and Garden Peas August 1, 2012 at 4:16 pm

I can’t wait to wear baby #2! I just held my first a lot because I never got used to the carrier, but I plan to really use one with the new baby. I would love to try Catbird – I’ve heard lots of great things, and I love their prints.

Toby August 1, 2012 at 4:24 pm

The ErgoBaby definitely looks the most rugged…


Mary August 1, 2012 at 4:26 pm

My favorite things about babywearing are how content my baby is and that I have my hands free to get stuff done or eat.


Chantal August 1, 2012 at 4:40 pm

I love babywearing for many reasons. It keeps my youngest close while allowing me to go hands free. She first her first almost 10 months inside me, you cant get much closer than that; so for at least her first ten months outside my womb I need her as close as possible! :) It keeps her from crying (for the most part) and seriously, who wants a crying baby?!? I get so much more accomplished with her in a carrier as I go hands free, which is essential given I have a busy, larger than life 3 year old. I carry my eldest sporatically, she gets a real kick out of being carried on my back and it allows me to move much faster when were on foot given Ive banked more “walking years” than her. If I were to win, I would opt for a beco as Ive been eying one for a while but my budget wont allow the purchase of one.


TaniaM August 1, 2012 at 4:49 pm

So happy for this giveaway! I love ring slings and pouches! They keep my baby close to my heart!!


Brittnay Urdahl August 1, 2012 at 4:52 pm

I love it because I get to get things done and bond with baby.


Michelle Smith August 1, 2012 at 5:29 pm

I love baby wearing, it allows you to feel close to your baby and still allows you to be mobile.


Nadine Forget August 1, 2012 at 5:49 pm

Gives you the ability to get around. The ERGObaby Performance carrier will help with twins


Lydia Hostetler August 1, 2012 at 7:17 pm

I like babywearing because it helps to calm the baby. I wore my 2nd child til he was about 8 months old, I was sick and pregnant again. I wore a wrap, but I am eager to try out the Ergo baby.. That one looks like it might fit my build better.


Ashley Kemper August 1, 2012 at 8:51 pm

I’ve never tried a boba or beco!


Deanna P. August 2, 2012 at 11:22 am

I think at the moment that I love the features that the Onya baby carrier has. It seems the most comforable and easy to wear for me and baby.


Alison Miles August 2, 2012 at 11:43 am

Baby wearing is so versatile, makes my bebe so cozy and calm. I love our Ergo and almost never use a stroller!


Addison Kat August 2, 2012 at 12:02 pm

I’m excited about the ERGObaby Performance Carrier with Cargo Pack and I like baby wearing because with 2 other kids, I definitely need my hands free!


Amie August 3, 2012 at 5:53 am

My favorite things about babywearing are the hugs shared, the bond it creates, and the fact that I can get so much more done with my day hands free! I am excited about all of the carriers…they look wonderful!


judi August 3, 2012 at 1:43 pm

I love babywearing because it allows me to keep baby happy and care for my home and family at the same time. I am super excited about winning any of the SSC. I’ve never had one and I’d really like to give one a try.


Amanda Klenner August 3, 2012 at 4:27 pm

I love the snuggles with hbaby wearing! And I really want the sling carrier…

I’m the most excited about the Beco!


Laura August 3, 2012 at 5:03 pm

I love my moby wrap! It is a life & sanity saver for a colic baby. Makes shopping with two kids easier too. Love it


Laura August 3, 2012 at 5:14 pm

thanks for promoting baby wearing!


Jennifer Lutz August 3, 2012 at 5:27 pm

I love baby wearing because its so nice to take the kids somewhere and have your hands free without having to push a stroller!


diosyl evan borbon August 3, 2012 at 5:29 pm

I am very much excited with the Moby Wrap baby carrier because this kind is not available in our country. as a new mom, I am really hoping to win this.


Liz B August 3, 2012 at 6:20 pm

Baby wearing is the only way I can get anything done, period. I love that it keeps my babe close and hands free so I can chase my toddler around. Plus it leaves room in the shopping cart for actual groceries, and not just the carseat. Soooo many reasons baby wearing is a must!


Jamie August 3, 2012 at 6:32 pm

Babywearing provides an awesome way to stay mobile and bond at the same time.


Tina M August 4, 2012 at 6:24 am

never used a carrier with my daughter, but now that I have a son, 6 months, I would love to have one. I could have hands free to do other stuff around the house when he is fussy or use it at the park when I take my daughter (it would be much easier


carly glover August 4, 2012 at 3:26 pm

i have been wanting to try the becco! they look so pretty and functional!


Renea Pike August 4, 2012 at 4:00 pm

I am most excited for the Ergo, and Beco or Boba! Last baby carrier I had was a Beco, we sold it for financial purposes, but now that we want another baby I need to get a new carrier!


Trisha W. August 4, 2012 at 8:17 pm

I would love to use one of the carriers that allow my to wear a child on my front or back such as the Ergo, Beco, etc.


Keara B. August 5, 2012 at 7:17 pm

I’m excited for the Boba or the Beco- I’ve heard wonderful things about them and would love to have one!


Amanda N. August 6, 2012 at 2:06 pm

I love that it keeps my son close and can calm us both down if tensions get high. No chasing him around, but no struggling with a stroller, either. So portable and handy! It also gets him up so he can see and his face isn’t down staring at a bunch of butts or at lit cigarette level.


Crunchy Con Mommy August 6, 2012 at 4:19 pm

I’m pregnant with my second child and I can’t imagine how I could take good care of both of them without babywearing. I’m definitely looking forward to NOT having to decide between keeping my newborn close to me and going places with my preschooler.
I have a Boba already that I LOVE but I’m also really excited to try an Ergo since you can’t use a Boba with a newborn.

Amy Brown August 6, 2012 at 4:25 pm

I would love to win a k’tan baby carrier!!


Janie August 6, 2012 at 7:10 pm

I love baby wearing for the convenience as well as for the snuggle time with my little one.


Ayla S August 7, 2012 at 12:41 pm

I love baby wearing, it helps me bond with my baby and I can get things done around the house!


Alessandra Peterson August 7, 2012 at 2:22 pm

I have been dying to get my hands on a Baby K’tan and also any kind of wrap! I have a few soft structured carriers but would like to experiment with something different!


Jaimie Adams August 8, 2012 at 4:40 am

I love the closeness you have with your baby when you wear a carrier. I absolutely love the funky style/designs that these carriers have. Thanks!


Julita K August 10, 2012 at 6:45 am

Babywearing is best for all parties! Happy baby, hands free mommy, so happy big sisters!!!


Sharon L. August 10, 2012 at 12:36 pm

Baby wearing is the only way I can get things done around the house because my baby girl wants to be held constantly. It’s also the only way we can successfully make it through any type of shopping trip!
Sharon L. recently posted..Fluffy Bum!My Profile


Lindsay August 10, 2012 at 3:30 pm

I’m excited about being able to hike while babywearing!


Jessica O August 11, 2012 at 12:54 pm

I love the closeness the most when I baby wear!


colleen cannon August 13, 2012 at 12:52 pm

My most favourite thing about babywearing is feeling my sweet boy next to me all the time, after all with him up close for over 9 nine months inside its such a great feeling now too :)


Ashley C August 13, 2012 at 1:29 pm

I love babywearing because it allows me to be close to my daughter, have my hands free, take care of my 2yr old and my baby LOVES it. She sleeps so peacefully in her wrap!


Michele August 13, 2012 at 1:57 pm

I love babywearing cause it always me to bond and snuggle with the baby while taking care of the older 8 kids. I mainly us my woven wraps as they can be used in so many ways, and for so long of age span. I do love the ktan for newborn, and ssc for quick trips and mt when baby is already alseep and I need them in my back.


Devon Franco August 13, 2012 at 8:11 pm

I’ve heard so much great things about the Ergo would love to try one! :)


Alexis D. August 14, 2012 at 6:06 pm

I love baby wearing, because it helps build a stronger bond with my baby. In addition, with a 16-month-old and a newborn, I am able to hold the new baby hands free and work with my older baby. It’s a win-win situation!


lisa August 14, 2012 at 6:17 pm

Babywearing is a necessity! Excited about boba, ergo, and catbird…and all of them! I wilk use any of them!


Jen R August 14, 2012 at 7:04 pm

Great giveaway! Love the concept of babywearing, but didn’t have a carrier I loved with last baby. Have friends who’s carriers I loved trying out, and hope to have one of my own with the next baby!


Shakeeta W August 14, 2012 at 7:21 pm

I love babywearing because I love the closeness I have with my children and it makes nursing in public much easier since I don’t have to sit down and nurse.


Danielle Coolbaugh August 14, 2012 at 8:56 pm

I love babywearing because it keeps my baby feeling safe and secure. Plus, it’s just much easier to nurse them in public in a carrier.
